Queen of the Night NYC Review



Queen of the Night is New York City’s hottest nightlife to date. This is not your ordinary experience by any means, but an experience that goes above and beyond anything we can even think to compare.  A world of fantasy, acrobatics, mystery and fun is what lies beyond the doors of Queen of the Night.  Located in the Diamond Horseshoe at the Paramount Hotel in Midtown, this has vastly become known as one of New York’s most talked about nightlife adventure.

We will fill you in on the experience the best we can, but after you read this you should just go ahead and see for yourself. It is a dinner show– but so much more, almost like you just stepped into a world where Gatsby meets Cirque du Soleil meets Alice in Wonderland.  Yeah, it’s as amazing as you’re currently picturing it.


From the New York Times to  Bazaar, Daily News, The Hollywood Reporter, and Entertainment Weekly the reviews are priceless and worth a read in their own right.
